A flatwater paddlers guide to paddling at the Penrith White Water Stadium

Paddling at the Penrith White Water stadium is like playing cricket at the MCG (although usually a bit wetter).  The greats paddle there, recent World and Olympic champions like Jess Fox and Jiri Prskavec.  Local, Melbourne heroes like triple Olympian Warwick Draper, now a teacher at Ivanhoe Grammar, and Mia and Andrew Farrance, both Olympians; Andrew paddled at Penrith for the Sydney Olympics.

Frank Harrison Race 2019

The Frank Harrison race was held on the Murray - on Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 February 2019.  Huge turnout of paddlers - more than 130 paddlers, with over 200 entries across the 2 days.

Both days were warm, mid 30s, and the 26km from the Hume Weir Wall to Albury felt like every one of those km.  Particularly after eating way too much pizza on Friday evening - not good paddling food!
